Help me give my students materials to help them as they learn to read and annotate text.
My students come from the most trauma exposed neighborhoods in our city. They live through nightly chaos, and yet still arrive to school daily, and with a smile on their face. They inspire me, and I want to give them the world. I can't do exactly that, but I can give them a classroom filled with everything they need to succeed.
They have made a commitment and have taken on the challenge to be the change.
They want college, they want to learn, they want more- and are starting to gain the confidence that they are capable to do it all.
Each marking period my students diligently work on tackling tough text. They have made wonderful gains. One area that we struggle with is being able to dive into a text a 2nd and 3rd time and really see the growth in our understanding. It's hard to switch between pencil and pen, when you only have pencil; or underline on day 1 and highlight one day 2, but you're without a highlighter.
My students strive for excellence, and I want to provide them with the materials they deserve to get there.
These materials will truly allow my students to dive into texts and show their understanding, and how it has developed. These materials will allow them to worry about the text, and not where to put their materials so they don't become lost, or fall behind in the classwork because they spent so much time looking for a highlighter. They will be able to focus on becoming better readers.
